FAQ

Does it hurt?

Pain is really relative. Everyone has a different tolerance to pain. It does hurt – just not that much. Some have compared it to a “hot scratching feeling”. But, people would not be returning again and again for tattoo after tattoo if it hurt that bad! Most of us are not into pain, but the beauty of the tattoo and the pride associated with wearing it far outweighs a little pin-stick here and there.

Do I need a touch up?

If you look after your tattoo; follow our instructions during the healing process and once the tattoo is healed, apply a 30spf sun block when you are exposed to the sun, you will not need a touch up. Your tattoo will stay bright and vibrant for years.
